 Coborn’s is again partnering with CROSS Center to help families put a turkey on their table for the holidays. If you are not planning on using your Coborn’s Turkey Card for yourself, please consider donating it to the CROSS Center.

The road construction in front of the CROSS Center makes it challenging to do business. With the temporary sidewalk our customers can park on other streets or parking lots and walk to our front door. We do not have room to park in the back because it must be kept open for dropping off of donations and those driving in the back for pick up. Only bring in donations during the open hours, please. We will be open our usual days and times:  Monday 1-4, 6-8; and Thursday 10-3.  Phone: 968-7012.  Call during open hours if you have any questions.  For anyone who has difficulty walking, please call to make arrangements.


The CROSS Center would like to remind people once again to donate during hours. Recently, some donations were left outside and were rained on. They had to be thrown away.


Thank you to the  anonymous beet donor. They were our first donation of garden produce this year!


The Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church is starting a vegetable garden project. The goal is to supply fresh, healthy vegetables to the CROSS center this summer and fall. We invite you to join us in this new adventure. So whether you are a master or novice gardener —we need you!  The Garden plot is located at 8179 Ronneby RD NE Foley (Nancy Ammend’s home). If interested please call Nancy 320-336-9816 or Pam 520-720-8800. So put on your green thumb and come enjoy fellowship with your gardening friends.

With the next school year just around the corner, the CROSS Center is starting its School Supply Drive once again. Here is a list of needed supplies. Thank you for your support of local kids.


July Challenge- During the summer months food shelves see an increase in visitors due to the children being home from school. Last July, the CROSS Center saw 454 visitors. You can help by donating during July. The more you donate, the larger our food shelf’s grant from Open Your Heart to the Hungry and Homeless will be. The challenge funds will proportionally match your donation. Thank you for your support.


Foley Fun Days are June 20-22. As a result, the CROSS Center will be closed Monday, June 20.
